The Lyrics

As a mechanical music and band organ enthusiast myself, while I do respect MIDI for all the capabilities it can do. I largely prefer rolls because they give me more nostalgia and keep tradition alive.
I saw you with that band organ from 1922
Tuning it great, intent at arranging some new tunes
If it had rolls, it didn't stop it playing tunes
Oh-a, oh-a
They made the effort for a roll ending system
Replayed using computer and new technology
And now I understand the changes we all see

Oh-a, oh-a
I saw your collection
Oh-a, oh-a
Gave it a restoration

MIDI killed the band organ star
MIDI killed the band organ star
Interface came and ceased the holes
Oh-a-a-a oh

And now we meet on an abandoned carousel
We hear the music and it seems to just compel
And you remember the rolls they would sell

Oh-a, oh-a
Started the first tune
Oh-a, oh-a
Ended the last tune

MIDI killed the band organ star
MIDI killed the band organ star
In my mind it's gone too far
They can't convert, tech's on the bar

Oh-a-aho oh
Oh-a-aho oh

MIDI killed the band organ star
MIDI killed the band organ star

In my mind it's gone too far
They can't convert, tech's on the bar
Interface came and ceased the holes
Put the blame on contemporary rolls

MIDI killed the band organ star
MIDI killed the band organ star
MIDI killed the band organ star
MIDI killed the band organ star
MIDI killed the band organ star
